Anyone who watches this documentary and does not walk away feeling absolutely humbled or at the very least - completely blown away needs to re-evaluate their mind. This is just such a piece of work. I have seen countless documentaries on astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology etc. but nothing has even come close to delivering the idea that we live in a most amazing universe like this movie does. It also does so in a most unpatronising way - treating the viewer with mucho intelligence. Hey - this is not a review - just a comment that I had to make after watching this. I will look forward to watching this again and again. One should never tire of experiencing anything like this. Watch it - experience it - enjoy it and most of all - learn from it!! - J.R.

My wife and I watched this astounding documentary last night. We both sat there with our mouths literally agape as this astonishing film pulled us into a journey from earth, through our solar system, our Galaxy, galaxies beyond our own, and all the way back to the beginning of time. As another reviewer commented, the tone is not from the point of view of "I'm a brilliant scientist and I know a lot more than you." You are guided along instead as if you were a tourist on a tour bus through the heavens. Before the film was over, I had achieved an epiphany. This to me was more than a film...it changed my life. It is beautiful, poetical, and it will shock you with its unadorned majesty.
Walking into this title I was uncertain due to it's completely CGI approach to rendering the various celestial bodies that inhabit our universe. What I found was the animation and story telling absolutely wonderful. Alec Baldwin was good here with his subtle low voice adding a perfect match as we travel through the heavens.Bearing in mind I have my own views and ideas on origins, this film was still hands down an excellent production. The detailed descriptions of the various planets, stars, nebula, and black holes were all there. The best part about it is that they took you to those places-close up, in the comfort of your living room.I'm a big fan of shows like "The Universe" and other various science documentaries and I found this to be top notch. Sit back, grab a snack and a cold one and enjoy this fine flick. 5 out of 5 stars and an IMDb 10.
First of all, I could watch this over and over. There is so much information that you cannot fully comprehend after viewing once. I have seen this DOC several times and each time I retain more and more information. Like otther reviews before me this DOC at the very least humbles you and leaves you with you jaw wide open. Personally, I am a huge Alec Baldwin fan and his voice is perfect, not only for this DOC, but just in general. Him Narratting is what initially sucked me in and kept me from changing the channel. On a personal note I am a believer of GOD and believer that he created all of what we see on in this DOC. Many people will argue that this DOC raises questions about a single creator but for me this helps to confirm it. It makes me realize that all of what was created had to be created for a reason. Everything happened too perfectly for this just to be some random coincidence with no purpose. Of course this is my opinion and we are all free to have our own. Jordan from KY,USA.P.S. Alec Baldwin is the man.
If you've seen Hubble 3D, you might think that it's the ultimate space documentary, that nothing can be better. Well, that's wrong. Because "Journey to the Edge of the Universe" is two times more interesting than Hubble 3D.This documentary is the most detailed and complete documentary about the Universe, it's starts, planets and galaxies. The detail is amazing. The images are on pair with the Hubble 3D imagery.This documentary treats about the Universe, from it's tiniest component to it's largest. It's made for the general public in an amazingly clear, easy to understand and riveting approach. Congrats to the Canadian producing company Handel Productions for such perfect achievement.
